    Only some needed over filling. There was a post a while ago about it.

    I bought some from Vauxhall (But not used it yet lol)

    According to TIS it holds 1.75L by volume.....thats all ive put in mine anyway.

    And uses the Vauxhall manual gearbox oil, its red in colour. Think its the SAE-80 stuff.

    Sounds good, know where drain plug is?
    Just below the nearside driveshaft, bit tight of a fit between subframe and box.
    Is doable, ive had oil out 3 times in mine now. hehe.
